Start to Finish: Alt-Pop Rock

Band Five AM poses unique mix challenges with their blend of live instruments and synth-based pop elements in this Alt-Pop Rock installment of the Start to Finish series. Seth Munson expertly sets the tone so that two very different genres can live in the same song without being jarring, yet also nodding to how both those genres are generally mixed. If you ever wondered how live tracked bass and 808s can be juggled so that they both work in the same mix, this two-and-a-half hour session is for you. Your one-time purchase of this product gets you instant access to stream the entire course, forever.

They genuinely enjoy all styles of music, and are proof that you can be in an alternative band and still create music that isn’t put in just one box. With that, they’ve gained a passionate following and exciting sound that is all their own.

"Throughout Seth's videos everything is clearly logical in the way his workflow works for him, and shines the light on aspects of mixing that I needed help with. Being a great mixer is more than just the quality of work you get, it’s about the execution as well. Seth makes it very clear and easy to understand."

“There's so much misinformation out in the world of YouTube and other websites to teach young engineers how to basically mix themselves into a corner, and I truly think that Seth is the guiding light to lead people out of that corner with his wisdom and experience.”

"When you have a world class mixer actually show you the truths behind mixing concepts it doesn't get any better. Finally real content, by professionals with incredible approaches and mindsets to mixing."

"Too often I've gotten caught up in the 'you need this plugin' or 'this setup', but, in reality, it's all about knowing what you have and developing your ears and taste. That is one of the many lessons I've learned from Seth."

Coming from a producer and recording engineer background, I never fully tackled mixing. It’s something that I have always been trying to improve at. Mixing is an art in itself, and the in and outs of it are misunderstood most of the time. Seth makes following along extremely easy. It’s never hard to digest what he’s teaching and explaining. Throughout his videos everything is clearly logical in the way his workflow works for him, and he shines the light on aspects of mixing that I needed help with. Being a great mixer is more than just the quality of work you get, it’s about the execution as well. Seth makes it’s very clear and easy to understand. I highly suggest sitting down for a few hours and watching, learning, listening.

Watching Seth work has been incredibly inspiring to me. Seeing how simple things should be when you just use your ears and know your tools like the back of your hand is what I feel that every engineer should know before diving too deep. There’s so much misinformation out in the world of YouTube and other websites to teach young engineers how to basically mix themselves into a corner, and I truly think that Seth is the guiding light to lead people out of that corner with his wisdom and experience. Plus he’s really good at teaching his Cubase guru tricks to people that have been using it forever.

The content made by omniaud.io is next to none. Never have I seen such great long-form content where they actually break down each and every step. They show you exactly what they’re doing start to finish and why they choose to make each mixing move. Incredibly well put together, thought-out, and easily accessible. I’m still learning things from these videos and content. When you have a world class mixer actually show you the truths behind mixing concepts it doesn’t get any better. Finally real content, by professionals with incredible approaches and mindsets to mixing.

I really value Seth’s approach to mixing down music, he uses his ears and has a ‘no gimmicks’ mindset. These videos have an inordinate amount of ‘golden nuggets’ and I was amazed by the sheer amount there was to learn. Too often I’ve gotten caught up in the ‘you need this plugin’ or ‘this setup’ but in reality it’s all about knowing what you have & developing your ears and taste, and that is one of the many lessons I’ve learned from Seth. You’re the man, Seth.
